(May 23, 2018)

Thank you for showing us your beautiful Taiwan. We enjoyed every minute of our trip. The highlight was probably the Taroko Gorge, but that’s not to say that we didn’t enjoy soaking in hot tubs or peddling through rice paddies. The hotels were all fantastic and the food divine. But of course it is the tour guide who has the potential to make or break a trip. And we owe it to you [Iping] in no small measure that this was a fabulous trip. You planned everything meticulously and left nothing to chance.....

We recently finished our tour with Tom Hu and it was so fantastic. He was a stellar guide in every way. His attention to detail was meticulous and he made the trip so comfortable and enjoyable..... Thanks so much for all your help. All of the accommodations you arranged for us were perfectly suited to our family. I know we were extra work for you, and I really appreciated that you went the extra mile to work everything out for us in such a satisfactory manner.
